The Horse Power Bar & Grill (Facebook) will open in the old Pipers location located at 171 S Orange Ave. at the Chase Plaza in Downtown Orlando.
I stopped yesterday and chatted with the owners Michael Lassahn and Katie Walton. They told me the name comes from her love for horses and his love for hot rods. They’ll carry that idea out through the restaurant.
They describe their restaurant as a neighborhood bar specializing in live music, sports, and fresh food.
The space will be a great place to watch the game on one of their 20+ TVs and when there’s not a game on they plan to have live music.
They are re-doing the menu and will also be serving lunch once they open.
They are shooting for an early September opening and will have an official grand opening on October 5. We’ll keep you posted on their progress
